Post your before & After CG pics

I've had curly hair my whole life. From as early as I can remember until my freshmen year of high school my mother would force me to keep my hair straight, and even do the 2 hour process for me 3 times a week. I finally decided one day that it really wasn't worth all the effort. My hair was broken and damaged when I went all curly, but now its silky, bouncy and fun! I wouldn't trade my curly hair for the world!

Luvin the Spritz and Condish method! =)
Hey everyone!

I am new poster and a long time lurker. I just wanted to say how gorgeous you all look! You all inspired me to do the CG method so I started yesterday morning....

Now I know that this morning has only been day 2 of CG and that I have read over and over that your hair will look worse before it looks better but for how long?? lol. It feels super soft but it is flat and greasy looking...bah!

Texaskurl, your rebelling-against-the-flat-iron beach hair reminds me of the late 80's/early 90s hair "look" that all the stars had in movies - IIRC, Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman had a similar look to her hair though it was curlier. And now I totally want to watch it again....
OMG, LOOK!!

...It's a siggie.
Hey, guys! I'm Grace. I found you last night, and decided to start CG, especially after going through the ENTIRE thread and seeing everyone's beautiful curls.
I've got a few pics for you!

Straight at homecoming a few weeks ago(Redhead, blue dress.)

(I dicovered straightening irons in 9th grade, when some girls in theatre class brought one in and straightened my hair.)

Before, in August, with straight bangs. I might've ran a straightner through to take away some poof, not quite sure...
http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m...r/HPIM1596.jpg

Here's my 1st CO-wash/plopping/pinapple thing...and then it got frizzy, cause I pinappled overnight and it wasn't dry in the morning, so I put it up in school and it got kinda flat...it was much more curly this morning.
Ignore that stupid look on my face, PLEASE.
This is from about 15 minutes ago.

Grace, your curls look awesome. I can't believe it's after just one wash! Stay away from the straightening iron from now on! lol

and i'm pretty sure i have that green jacket
Wow, thanks so much! It feels great to not be a giant frizz-ball!

Hey, it's only a few days after my post, but wow! Look at the last few days of my hair! I'm totally charting this for my scrapbook.

Attached are three pics, first is pre-CG (by a few months), second is very beginning CG when I hadn't discovered enough cone-free products to tame my mane!, and the final pic is of today - having recently discovered Naked haircare.
